Can a human outrun an antelope? Why would anyone run 100 miles through Death Valley in July? McDougall explores the limits of human endurance with humor and insight on his quest to uncover the secrets of the Tarahumora or "running people" of Northern Mexico. At the crossroads of science and philosophy, he finds some surprising answers.
